Blue Caprice

Inspired by true events, this film investigates the notorious and horrific Beltway sniper attacks from the point of view of the two perpetrators, whose distorted father-son relationship facilitated their long and bloody journey across America. Marked by captivating performances by Isaiah Washington and Tequan Richmond, lyrical camerawork and a unique and bold structure, BLUE CAPRICE documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence. A riveting portrait of 21st-century America and a haunting depiction of two cold-blooded killers that endures long after the lights come up.

    The acting was superb but the film was a tad bit disjointed.

      I had to work when the group went to see the film so I caught it last night. I could not agree with you more. I left with more questions than I had when I went in.

    So many issues converged explosively in those terrible days: Race, immigration, gun laws, alleged terrorism, child custody, the death penalty, retribution, rehabilitation, and more. I really wish I could be with the group for this film, and the discussion over dinner afterwards, to talk about these topics in context of the sniper case, and also in context of civil rights, immigration reform, and the criminal justice system, which are all current issues of the day. I’m putting in a request for a readout of the dinner discussion!!! Since the film comes from the point of view of Muhammad and Malvo, here is an article on an interview Malvo did from prison, years later, if anyone is interested: http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2012-09-29/local/35495518_1_malvo-and-muhammad-lee-boyd-malvo-sniper-shootings.

      @ T.R. - Thanks for the alert on the article, although now I'm hoping after having read the rest that it wouldn't spoil the movie. I definitely would have never thought back in late 2002 that today Malvo would be doing meditation, yoga, and writing poetry.

      We wound up not going to dinner after the film but we still had a nice group chat when it concluded. It was successful at mentally taking us all back in time to when the shootings occurred and most of us gave a personal account of where they were and how they were feeling at the time. Though short, it was a great conversation.

    Hi, this would be my first meet up. Do you all meet in a particular place at the theater?

    September 28, 2013

  • David

    Naw. The po po got the right dudes. Lol.

    September 26, 2013

    • David

      For one, the style of shootings that were taking place stopped immediately with the arrest of these 2 individuals.

  • Kevin D. L.

    I'm new to the group. When we arrive at the theatre, does everyone gather in a specified location?

    So I probably won't be able to get on meet-up tomorrow to further coordinate things but I'll try to take my usual seat on the end of 1 of the rows on the left side of the theater near middle. If you don't see a handsome young man with a big hat (say if you get there late and they already dimmed the lights), feel free to text -[masked]

    Don't know if they were shooting out of the trunk but no doubt in my mind THEY were the shooters....

    September 27, 2013

  • terry

    I believe they have the right folks. ......Malvo testified against Muhammad. The gun was captured....the ballistics matched......the car was seen at the crime.....it was pretty open and shut.

    September 27, 2013

  • terry

    Remember John Muhammad was sentenced in VA and Lee Malvo was sentenced in MD. If Manson was in VA, he'd be history.....

    That would be interesting, to say the least , if they were innocent, but I have not heard anything to the contrary.

    September 27, 2013

    • Waldon A.

      Now that I think about it, your right, that is funny. Why is Manson still alive?

    Oh, I just had City Paper in my hand yesterday, and didn't look through it. I'll check that out online. I can't wait to see this film!!

    This movie has been bootlegged already. I heard it was really good.

    September 26, 2013

    • Dunori V. P.

      Speaking of bootlegs, there is one out in bootleg world called Never a Bright Day which was a local film put out around 2006 that focused on Malvo's mother if anyone is interested. Got my copy from the U Street Flea Market.

    Nice to see folks getting a dialogue about the subject matter of the film going. There is an article about it in the current citypaper too if anyone wants to check it out - http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/articles/44866/blue-caprice-and-don-jon-reviewed-for-those-who-lived/

    I'm interested in seeing how they show Malvo's Caribbean background.

    Wish I could see this with the group! I'll have to catch a later screening.

    I hope that I can be there I have been waiting for this.

      Likewise. I would have post it a long time ago but the theater was procrastinating on announcing the showtimes.

      September 26, 2013

  • Waldon A.

    I hope I can make this. I may have plans for that evening but there is a 85% chance it may not happen so I can make it to this filming. Keeping my fingers crossed
